Early Budget Leak

It's standard practice for bits and pieces concerning the governor's upcoming (January) budget proposal to start leaking out in December.

Today, on "Which Way LA?" - the evening program of KCRW - H.D. Palmer, a spokesperson for Governor Brown, indicated that there would be a budget presented which assumed the governor's proposed tax initiative would pass. That initiative won't be on the ballot until November (on the assumption that the governor can get the money to get the needed signatures), well into the 2012-13 fiscal year. If voters reject the initiative, there will be another budget trigger that would automatically scale back spending.
